Dear D.J. Lucas, My uncle bought me one of your books for Christmas. It's called Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Boy? I want to be a writer. I want to write a story now. Please will you help me? Love from Max. And so begins Max's funny correspondence with his favorite author, the world-famous D.J. Lucas. What follows is a touching tale about imagination, friendship, storytelling, and sharing secrets.
When Max writes to his favorite author, they become pen pals, talking about bullies, parachuting, and writing a book.
